"From God's Favorite Band to the world's best fans, Christmas comes early," they continued.

The title for the album is a reference to Green Day's Mar. 22 performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The two new songs on the greatest hits album include a track titled "Back In The USA" and a duet with country star Miranda Lambert titled "Ordinary World," Billboard reported.

Other songs that will be featured on God's Favorite Band include "American Idiot," "Know Your Enemy," "Holiday," "Basket Case," "When I Come Around," "She" and "Warning."

Green Day, consisting of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool, previously released a greatest hits album titled International Superhits! in 2001. Eight tracks from the first compilation will also be appearing on God's Favorite Band.
